Designed by the late Colonel Rex Applegate--one of this nation's top authorities on close-quarters combat--the Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn Combat folding knife stands as a lasting symbol of the Colonel's dedication, expertise and sense of purpose. Internationally known as a best-of-class folding tactical knife, it offers unmatched strength, durability and balance. The 4.48" drop point, serrated blade is made of high carbon stainless steel and it's complemented by a glass-filled nylon handle for a good grip under any condition. It also features the patented Roto-Lock, which ensure that the knife remains locked open without any chance of accidental closure or collapse. The Applegate-Fairbairn Combat measures 10.06 inches when open and 5.64 inches when closed and it weighs 7.4 ounces.
